Columnist might as well have said 'unladylike'

In a recent column, “Biden remains the Democrat to beat Trump” (July 4), Froma Harrop referred to Kamala Harris during the second Democratic debate as smart, aggressive and obnoxious. I’m sure if Harris was male he would have been referred to as simply smart and aggressive. Harrop might as well have called Kamala Harris “unladylike.” People need to learn that women are a big part of politics now, and ladylike does not work in this arena. It depresses me to see how some folks still see the presidency as aged, white and male. We need to move forward and keep up with who best represents our society today.
